The 2014 BMW M5 is a high-performance sports car whose exceptional dynamic potential is geared squarely towards the demands of track use while - at the same time - sets a new benchmark in daily driving with its touring comfort and innovative equipment features. It also sets the pace in its class in terms of efficiency.

In order to achieve these lofty performance goals, the new BMW M5 introduces the most powerful engine ever fitted in a series-produced model from BMW M GmbH mated to a new high-torque 7-speed M-Double Clutch (M-DCT). An innovative Active M Differential which optimizes power transfer to the rear wheels combined with extensive chassis upgrades developed on the history of extensive racing expertise ensure that the engines performance can be transferred to the ground.

Under the hood of the new BMW M5 lies a newly developed, high-revving V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo, maximum output of 560 hp and peak torque of 500 lb-ft. The instant power delivery and sustained thrust that M cars have built their reputation results in an acceleration of 0- 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) in 13.0 seconds.

Exterior Design: Looks the Part

The design of the 2014 BMW M5 showcases its stand-out character. The dynamic proportions and stylish authoritative appearance of the BMW 5 Series Sedan has been further enhanced by the addition of M-specific design features. The carefully selected enhancements are geared to meeting technical demands, making them a central element of the Sedan's performance. The car's extraordinary potential is highlighted subtly and with impressive authenticity by the distinctive design elements on its front, sides and rear end.
